Kaleidescape’s new entry-level compact Terra 6TB (6 terabyte capacity) is now shipping. The Terra 6TB, when combined with a Strato C player, replaces the Kaleidescape Strato S as the company’s entry-level system.
With the power to download feature-length 4K movies in as little as 10 minutes on a gigabit internet connection, the newest Kaleidescape movie server provides four times faster movie downloads than its Strato S 6TB all-in-one player-server.
In addition, a compact Terra 6TB can serve up to five simultaneous 4K Ultra HD playbacks on Strato players in different rooms, compared to only two simultaneous playbacks for Strato S.
The new server can download movies while simultaneously supporting playbacks on Strato players, which is something Strato S cannot do. Storage can scale up with the addition of an additional Terra 6TB, 12TB, or 18TB or a full-sized Terra 24TB, 48TB, or 72TB.
Designed with a profile similar to a Strato C movie player, the new compact server can be mounted beside a Strato C in a 1U rack space, using Kaleidescape’s custom rack mount.
The Kaleidescape compact Terra 6TB movie server is initially offered as a bundle with the Strato C movie player at a special price of $7,995 through March 31, 2022.
